On June 7th, we posted on the following photo caption from a June 6th Daily Mail article about the ‘radical’ British graffiti artist known as Bansky:
We complained to Daily Mail editors, arguing that characterizing Israel’s security fence – erected in response to Palestinian suicide bombings during the Second Intifada – as an “apartheid wall” is an egregious distortion of the truth, and parrots the incendiary rhetoric of extremist anti-Israel activists.
Daily Mail editors replied to our complaint that same day, and agreed to correct the caption. The word “apartheid” was removed from the caption.
We thank the Daily Mail for the prompt correction.
